Track Name: Intertwine
Staring at the night sky
A light in the distance
Is this real, are we under the influence

Dark shadows cloud the skyline
A storm is rolling in
From here it looks picturesque

Flashes so bright
You shade your eyes
When we sway
As we sway
You shade your eyes

Black in all direction
A devistating sight
Catastrophic weather
Will keep us warm tonight

Somehow it's calming
As disaster's at bay
Conjured by nature
That will never change

In the eye, there's a break in the clouds
A perfect view of orion

Surround me with your presence
I felt us align
Staring into your eyes
As we intertwine
When we sway
As we sway

Staring at the night sky
Lights in the distance
Is this real, are we under the influence

Flashes so bright
You shade your eyes
When we sway
As we sway
You shade your eyes

When the storm surrounds us
The calm air endearing
As we wake up to light again
I am captivated by the way that you move

When we align
We intertwine
We sway
We sway
Track Name: Harvest Hearts
Floating out to sea
The ocean swallows me whole
Eternally caught in the undertow

But somehow I'm breathing underwater
As I sink deeper
Held down by the passing currents
And I can't escape it
Drifting for what seems like years

Still searching
How long has it been
I'm not the only one under the surface
Familiar faces
But no one's satisfied

It's ironic how shallow hearts
Search the deepest water

The sea of harvest hearts
Rough as the reef
Left to decompose
Don't get lost down here
I need to get back before the deep
Reaps my heart

Where I am
I'm careless
Heartless
I've lost it

Don't let me close
I'll harvest your heart
And leave you breathless

Sank too deep
The abyss and I are one
Uncertain of what's next
The thought leaves me paralyzed

But I've got hope for the deep
To release me
Until then the sea of harvest hearts
Will be as it's always been
A solace in the deep

I can't feel a thing
The frigid waters made me numb

where I am
I'm careless
Heartless
I've lost it
I have hope for the deep
Track Name: Dreamstate
DREAMSTATE


Eyes are wandering
The sky is following us down
But I recall We abandoned light

Blinded, senses heightened
Though darkness surrounds
I feel what I can't see

Casting shadows in my mind
Confined to it
I visualize figures
Forever night

I'm hoping to find light in this darkness
I've learnt to cope
I picture landscapes in front of me
The Sounds resonate in my soul

A sacrifice of sight for life
What my mind leads me to see
Outlining images, lost in revery

An endless disbelief
To find clarity in what can't be seen
A tarnished Dreamstate

Casting shadows in my mind
Confined to it
I visualize figures
Forever night

Eyes are everting
mine are sewn, shut down
But I recall we abandoned light

Blinded, senseless mindsets
Through darkness we feel
That It's all in my head

Casting shadows in my mind
Confined to it
I visualize figures
Forever night

Light breaks through, I see again
Only blotches cloud my vision
A tarnished dreamstate

Up above it's burning red
I can see my own reflection
A tarnished dreamstate
Track Name: Tongue Ties
They’ll call you a sinner
But who hasn't lied
We’re all victims in tongue ties
And you’re fading away
In a memory

Head first facing the wind
Waves break as the tide rolls in

The train tracks ,seem endless
Your’e upset,  who isn't
But you feel the same as the memories

I can't go back
But if I could
I'd do it all again
I'd go back to when time stood still
I know what went wrong
But I've always held on
To the memories

Hearts as calloused as hands

Send me off to sleep
I need to make those memories a reality again
I'll find a way to stay fast asleep for eternity 
Send me off to sleep
I need to make those memories a reality again
I'll find a way to stay fast asleep for eternity 

I have realized
That you were my colour

Send me off to sleep
I need to make those memories a reality again
I'll find a way to stay fast asleep for eternity 

Florescent subtleties
Fade in and out
And Shades
They all turn to grey

I've lost the will to see colour
Everything is grey
All the same
So colour please come back to me

I've lost the will to see colour
Everything is grey
All the same
So colour please come back to me
Track Name: Still Water
A glimpse of the moon
Has me stilled
The views I see are overcome by beauty

Northern lights hit the mountain peaks
Making silhouettes on water
Painting a picture in my mind

Chasing whispers through the night
But I can't seem to find you
I can't seem to find you

It's not the same as the time I spent with you
A different cold that chills to the bone
Your nothing to compare to

Tall trees stand alone
As old as the earth it's hard to translate
Pictures into words
The clouds were like the waves of the ocean
Casting shadows over me

Standing on the shore
Every constellation visible
In reverse

The placement of stars
Can guide us from where we are

Still Water ran deep
Reflecting your eyes
Dry air grazed your cheek
As you looked into mine

I remember every time you made my knees weak
Trees sway to the moment of our beating hearts
Our love is luminescent
Yet the night is dark
There's still time to find you .....
